The Ledger details two additional deaths in addition to the shooting on North 11th street covered earlier. One of the two stabbing incidents occurred at Market and Broad at 8:45 AM. A suspect found with what is presumed to be the murder weapon is is in police custody.

The first killing happened at 4 a.m. Sunday, when officers found a woman suffering from a stab wound in her chest, police said. The woman — whom police have not identified — was taken to University Hospital, where she died a short time later.

That death was followed a few hours later by a fatal stabbing at Broad and Market streets. The 8:45 a.m. attack ended with Gerald Mathews, 40, of Newark, with a wound on his upper torso, police said. He died at University Hospital later that morning.
